A game with 15 errors is scarcely
up to the standard of theThree-I
league, no matter who wins That
is the sort that Kock Island and Dav
enport flayed this morning, the for
mer carrying- off the victory, 6 to 5.
The players got up with the little
birds and about 500 fans, nearly all
from this' side of the- river got up
with them and repaired to the
Twelfth street park, where the trou
ble began at 9 o'clock sharp.
Kock Island won in the first inning
with two singles, two two-baggers
and two errors by their opponents,
netting a total of five runs. After
that Stauffer was hard to find. Dav
eniHrfs turn came at the end. and
with their reputation as finishers it
looked very blue for Kock Island
along about the beginning- of the
ninth. 'With the score standing 6 to
nobody out and enough men on
bases to give the visitors the "game,
the locals got the old combination
working and kept the runners away
from the plate. ,
In the first inning Miller got on base
through an error by King at short
and was sacrificed on by Donnelly.
(iraham and Wright pounded out
singles and one run was counted.
Wilkinson struck out, but the end
was not yet. Williams cleared the
bases with a two-bagger and. Weih
rauch followed up with a match for
it. King- gave Kuby a hard chance
out in left and camped on second on
the error. Smith went out on a foul,
five runs having" been counted.
'Holy Smoke" Weihrauch, who hits
well early in- the morning, smeared a
clean hit away over to the right cor

Cord. McCord was entirely to blame yes
terday. Tha left handed little twirl
er had the game tied up in his big
down-out curves and he did not even
give Kock Island a good look at
the packare. Two hits, a clean one
by Donnelly and a scratch by Weih
rauch, was all he allowed, and his
passes were not numerous enough to
do any damage. Eight well bunched
hits off Case gave Davenport their
One of the old-time crowds was on
hand and the fans were expecting:
great things, in view of the showing
the two opposing- teams have been
making in the recent past. The an
ticipation of excitement, however.
was not realized, as there were few
features, and the lead of Daven
port after the fourth inning was such
as to give Rock Island a very narrow
chance of pulling up even.
For Donnelly's men, players were
on first in but four innings, and only
in the sixth was there any possibility
of a- score. Then Case walked, was
forced at second by Miller, and Don
nelly got his hit. Graham and Wright
went out in succession of measly lit
tle bouncers to the pitcher.
Davenport started off in the fourth
by Xill and Crockett getting hits.
King- bunted to Case, who tried to
throw to third, but Rock Island's
third baseman was also after the ball
and the sack was not covered. Hence
the bases were filled. Alperman and
Evrrs flew out to Donnelly and a run
came in in each case. Fuchs in the
meantime was given a base. McCord
ended it by striking- out. In the fifth
Kuby, Crockett and King bunched hits
and Smith sacrificed for another. The
other pair were made in the seventh.
Smith took a base, Xill lived on King's
bad throw, Crockett sacrificed and
King hit for the first run. The other
got in on a" double steal. Alperman
struck out aud Fuchs got a base.
The later allowed himself to be
caught off the sack and while he was
running between bases. King , ran
from second only to be nipped at the
plate on a neatly timed throw by

season from their Davenport con
temporaries, the game being played
at the Twelfth street park in this
city. The visiting aggregation came
to this side of the river with consid
erable confidence of pulling out a
victory but at the end of a fast and
sensational contest thev had made
but one circuit of the bases, while
Rock Island had made five. This
gives Rock Island the season's series.

H. M. Schuler, an anietuer who has
been playing with Gilchrist, but
whose present residence is Daven
port, has joined the Kock Island team
and is being given a try-out at Dav
enport this afternoon. King having a
bad haii'l. Schuler is a third base
man and has made an enviable record
in that position as an amateur. He
has played in past seasons with Gra
ham and O'Leary.
A Bloomington correspondent writ
ing of the present situation says:
"The greatest falling off in receipts
has been at Davenport, due to the de
cline in standing- of its club. Last
Sunday Bloomington took but $103 as
its share of the patronage, whereas
in the past the sum of $500 or more
has been divided. Due to this let
down in profits and interest it looks
as if any change in the circuit was
made that Davenport would be the
one to go. Manager Hayes made a
fervent appeal to President Sexton to
reinstate Catcher .Tack Evers, who
was suspended for the season for his
attack upon I'nipire Hickey. He ar-
g-ued that without Kvers the team
could not win, the people would not
turn out and there was danger of
the team not finishing the season,
lender the circumstances the presi
dent very unwillingly decided to let
Evers phi v." This is twice this sea
son that Davenport has been accused
of flunkeying- because the team hap
pened to be losing. In the opening
part of the season one of the papers
on that side said the people would
patronize only a winning team, and
as recently as last Friday the Leader
had among its baseball squibs the fol
lowing: "A few more games like
that played yesterday would have a
tendency to revive baseball interest
in this city, which at present must be
admitted to be at low ebb on ac
count of the poor showing made of
late by the team." A town that this
would be true of is a poor element in
any league, and fortunately Daven
port is the only one so constituted in
the Three-I. If the same spirit of
win or quit prevailed in Decatur,
Rock Island. Evansville or Blooming
ton we would not have had a league
this-year. The true spirit of sports
manship recognizes that all towns
cannot be at the head of the list and
those that are game are the ones
that can live through defeat.
